Steroids: the Nasty Controversy In today’s society people want to be their best and get there by any means necessary. People want to find the shortest and easiest way to make it to the top. People who choose to use steroids and HGH for reasons other than appropriate medical treatments fail to recognize that they not only damage themselves but they also damage the sport by cheapening any victories they claim. Some human beings out in the world believe that the use of steroids and HGH in sports is a good thing. They are wrong!!!
Legalization of Steroids Steroid use by athletes has been a controversial issue for some time. Others argue that the usage is totally wrong and it is against the morals and the rules of the games. Steroids do help performance of athletes, but they do have some side effects. A real athlete should work his/her way with hard work and the correct training to build that endurance and strength needed. As society merges from day to day and norms get more in percentage there are many things that are corrupting the American society.
“Athletes should be Tested for Drugs” DeVry University Summary/Reaction In the article titled “Athletes should be Tested for Drugs,” authors Lee, Deborah, Griswold and Ann. They argue that bans on use of illegal drugs in sports need to be enforced. The authors claims that the use of illegal drugs, in sports should not be justified and try to keeping the integrity of sports. People pay to view the games, but never would justify allowing athletes to break rules in obvious ways. Such as steroids, that improves athlete’s performance increasing 40 percent the chances of winning each games.
The sport that changes its rules to allow the use of performance enhancing drugs will be attacked as a freak show or worse.” In a way, the article contradicts itself, but at the same time shows a well thought out, balanced argument. The idea that sports should simply change their rules to adjust to changing times is one that rarely gets any thought, but this article makes a strong case for the rule makers to give some thought as to what exactly needs to change. “A Sporting Chance” brought up many points that go relatively unthought-of in the sports community.
The members of the community who did have syphilis were denied actual treatment and were forced to live through the effects of the disease until death came. They were lured by the promise of a “special free treatment” that were actually spinal tabs conducted without any anesthesia. Spinal taps were used to sty the neurological effects of syphilis. This study was unethical, by the way it was conducted. The denial of syphilis treatment to these men and the USPHS seeking to prevent treatment to the ones’ seeking treatment was morally wrong.
The use of a steroid will build larger muscles, and reduce muscle damage that can occur during intense workouts. Many other countries have developed these steroids specifically for athletes and have no approved medical use. The reason anabolic have no approved medical use is because they have not been tested or approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). When the FDA has not approved a drug, it can be a serious health threat to people who use them (6). Studies have not been performed to prove the true effects because the dosages of the steroids are so high that in becomes an ethical problem.
One can attempt to get drug users non-physically addicted repeatedly, however if there’s no effort to address why people do drugs in the first place- it won’t do anything. These people would go back to dealing drugs, and want to exploit them. The dealer profits, and only continues to try and get more addicted so they can profit further off of exploiting the mentally ill and the physically addicted.Instead of putting all the pressure on eradicating drugs, people's needs should be met. If they are engaged and part of a proper democratic community, it should be gauged as to how likely they are to use drugs- to a point
The author thinks that the way BEJING OLYMPICS uses to test female athletes like taking blood to test hormone, genes and chromosomes violates the innocent life. And the author thinks the athletes should be judged to be male or female not because of the genes in their bodies, but because of who they really are. I agree with the author. I don’t think the athletes should be “gendered” like that. Because if we keep doing this, there will be too many problems.
You should have to pay for what every you do in sports, but the cost should not be with your life. The Sport Council has set a rule that all athletes in professional sport should be tested for drugs. To prevent them from taking drug that has been banned or any other form of drugs. As stated MacAuley (1996) the Sports Council offers an information system so that athletes may find out about various agents and help protect themselves against the inadvertent use of a banned substance, but not only banned be any form of enhancements.

Even though the use of some drugs may benefit the team as a whole, it is still against the rules and should be dealt with harshly. Most high school teams refuse to perform drug tests because they suspect athletes use drugs. This avoidance of the truth allows many athletes to get places they do not belong. Star athletes who use drugs are living a big lie - their fame and prestige are falsely
